Berlin Waltz is a masterful blend of musical storytelling that left echoes in my head and heart for hours... so poetically dense, so beautifully crafted and structurally sound. Plank Magazine
More?s Berlin Waltz stands as a love letter to a city, an intimate encounter between biography and history, and also, a call for action. In her show, the artist encourages her audience to question actions taken by the Canadian government, specifically the introduction of invasive bills like the controversial Bill C-51. Joyful Magpipes

Devon More Music's Berlin Waltz is a multimedia Cold War cabaret featuring slam poetry, stories, songs and sock puppet history lessons. A young woman sets out on her bicycle to retrace the 100-mile route of the Berlin Wall - and the history of its rise and fall. Along the way, she awakens her political conscience - and builds her own Wall of Sound using an electronic looping station and a curious assortment of acoustic instruments.
